Agencies fume as MHA babus sit on Dawood case
Officers in the intelligence agencies are questioning the lack of credible action on the part of the bureaucrats of the North Block, which houses the Ministry of Home Affairs, who have been tasked to curtail and hit the operations of gangster Dawood Ibrahim, who continues to be a major hawala operator in the country.
Officers from the intelligence agencies are also questioning why the findings of the N.N. Vohra Committee on criminal-politician nexus were not being made public, as doing so would hit hard the India-based supporters of the underworld don, who continues to wield considerable influence within the country. The N.N. Vohra Committee was constituted more than 24 years ago to unearth the crimi- nalisation of politics and discover the nexus among criminals, bureaucrats and politicians. The committee headed by the current Jammu and Kashmir Governor, N. N. Vohra, had focused on Dawood Ibrahim’s links with political leaders and bureaucrats, some of whom are either in active service or have retired recently and continue to be in positions of influence.
